The Green Bay Symphony Orchestra in Wisconsin is closing down at the end of this season. Founded in 1913 the orchestra has a small debt, but sinking revenues from ticket sales and from donations have brought the board to the decision to end activities. However, as the Journal Sentinel reports, musicians remain hopeful that they can drum up support to keep the symphony intact. Some of them are in talks to carry on under a partnership with the Madison-based Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra.  Green Bay, situated at Lake Michigan, some 200 kilometers North of Milwaukee, has 100.000 inhabitants.
